Please put at least one valid content allocate to this component.

JCDISI participated 2019 Hong Kong Biennale of Urbanism\ Architecture. The exhibition was held from 19 December 2019 until 21 March 2020. JCDISI took this golden opportunity to show our work on the action projects of our Season 1 symposium: Transitional Social Housing.

Through a participatory social innovation design process that lasted more than a year, JCDISI carried out research on Transitional Social Housing. Starting with six sites, the co-creation teams designed 7 conceptual schemes. In which 3 sites – Ma Wan, Stanley and Sham Shui Po – were further developed through SoInno action projects into implementable prototypes. We attempted to reimagine the future of the city idle resources with reference to the opinions of cross-sector, cross-disciplined stakeholders, when faced with the pre-existing constraints and challenges. In response to the pressing social need, the project was initiated to explore how the idle sites can be revived by restitching urban fabrics and consolidating social cohesion.

Six TSH action project models are shown in the exhibition, which were put on top of the cloth with site feature design in response to the theme of exhibition, 2x2 - Imagine by Innovation. The idea of JCDISI’s exhibition originates from Furoshiki to reflect the spirit of an inclusiveness and flexibility. In the urban context, when faced with the opportunities and challenges arising from the progression of our society, the spatial design should be more flexible to deal with the needs of district and our society. How should we reimagine the future of our space?
